Abbott Laboratories will soon add more than 200 jobs as part of a planned expansion in McPherson.
A spokesperson for the Kansas Department of Commerce and Housing says the average wage at the plant will be more than $33,000. An announcement will be made about the Chicago based company in the next few weeks.
Abbott will receive state grants, loans and tax credits to expand the McPherson facility. The exact amount of those credits will not be released until the contract is approved.
